CLIMB SUMMARY

La Vuelta A España

Stage 13 (mountain stage #4)

There are 4 stages that could each be considered the toughest back-to-back days in pro cycling this year:

The day starts on a category 3 climb, the Col du Pourtalet, where the riders cross into France. What comes next is a loop the Tour de France has done dozens of times: attacking Tourmalet from the west by means of the iconic Pyrenean climbs, the Aubisque and Spandelles.

Did the Vuelta get inspiration from 2022 TdF’s Stage 18? 🤔

The summit finish at Tourmalet

Tourmalet is often described as one of the best bike climbs in the world

The Tourmalet and Aubisque are HC climbs in this stage. In the Vuelta a España, Hors Categorie climbs are called “ESP”, or “Especial” - designating that the climb is so hard that it’s above categorization.

Col du Tourmalet was also in Stage 5 of this year’s Tour de France, but climbed from the east.
